17 Weeks!

I can't believe how fast this pregnancy seems to be flying by. I'm sure once it gets closer to the delivery, time will slow way down. But for now I have to say that I'm loving every minute of being pregnant. The morning sickness is gone but I'm still trying to regain my appetite. Don't worry though, I'm eating enough for me and the little peanut. All in all though it's been a lot of fun! I am starting to feel the baby's little flutters and nudges and if I'm really lucky I feel what seems to be a kick! It's so faint though that sometimes I'm not so sure.
Next week we get to go find out what the sex is! I can't wait! I honestly don't care what it is but I'm so excited to find out :) Any Guesses?...

Virginia Trip

It's been a while since our last post but I wanted to make sure I documented our trip to Virginia and D.C. in April before I forget.
First of all it was so much fun to spend time with Jeff and Leza and their little cutie Addison. That made the trip! We went to the D.C. temple our first day there and that was such an awesome way to start off our trip! It is a beautiful temple.

There was a beautiful little path just behind the temple. It is so green over there it was a bit of a shock to us Arizonans.

The next day we did the D.C. tour with our tour guides Jeff and Addison. We each rode a bike around D.C. and that made it SO easy to get around. We covered so much ground that would've probably taken a couple days if we'd walked. It was awesome to see some of these monuments and historical sites that I've seen in books and movies up close. I have to say that the most moving aspect of the whole D.C. trip for me was to see the quotes of these great men of our nations past. God was the center of the U.S. at one point in time. It breaks my heart to see the leaders of the country today try to push Him out of everything we do! It was awesome to read some of the quotes written on some of these monuments. Anyways, here are a few pics from that day.

White House
Lincoln. This was one of the favorites. I couldn't get over how huge he is!

Outside Lincoln

After we saw D.C. we went to the Arlington Cemetery. It was such a solemn experience. It was moving to be on those sacred grounds and to watch the changing of the guards at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

Our final stop was the Marine Corps War Memorial.

We had such a great time! I have a ton more pictures from this trip but I think it'd take all day for my slow computer to load them.
